Chew the fat on any non-RC subject. It's a free-for-all but common rules of decency do apply so act like adults and don't embarrass yourself by trolling or cuss'n.

If you ever in your life time get the opportunity, go view an eclipse of the sun.
Living in Cairns, Australia we had the golden opportunity this morning to view such an event, not a partial but a full eclipse. I managed to take only 2 pics, I was so engrossed in the event and praying for the clouds to part.
This one with shakey hands using the cheap solar eclipse "glasses" as a filter taken at 0614

This one taken without any filter at 0638 about 1 minute before total eclipse, notice how dark it is (normally this time of day I'm wearing sunnies), I couldn't wait for the total to occur then take a pic as clouds were forming again:

Sorry the pics aren't all that great but WOW........what an event :o 8-)
Not enough time in the day for all my crazy ideas, I'm not slow, I'm just pacing myself
